The 2007 Mustang pulled out from the side-street in front of an older Chevy pickup at a tee intersection in a Suburban neighborhood with very restricted sight distance, and was T-boned on the driver's side by the pickup travelling at around 35 mph. The driver's side of the Mustang was severely damaged to the extent that the left front wheel/tire/suspension assembly was ripped off the car. The point of impact was between the left front wheel and the middle of the driver's door. The Mustang is a one-owner car which was bought new and was specifically purchased with side airbags (an option on 2007 Mustangs). The vehicle has been well-maintained. The airbag tab was visible on the seat side bolster. Despite the severity of the impact, the side airbag did not deploy. We have photos documenting the positioning of the vehicles and the damage to the Mustang, including showing the side airbag tab and side of the driver's seat with the side airbag obviously not deployed. We believe that the side airbag was defective since it did not deploy. Note: The steering wheel airbag (subject to the takata recall but not yet replaced) did deploy correctly.

I was following my wife to the Jeep Dodge Cherokee dealership to get her recall taking care of. On the way there at the off ramp of 575 and riverstone parkway I made a right turn to get off on the ramp to exit and I heard a loud thud and the motor accelerated very loud and odd sounding. I was unable to control the vehicle. The only thing I could do to keep from running into anyone was slam on the brakes when I did that the breaks gave a loud screech and was very slow to stop. I ended up hitting 3 cars on the left side none of the airbags deployed nor did any of the seatbelt lock so the only thing I had to stop me from hitting my head against the steering wheel was to put my hands out in front of me on the steering wheel. When the impact happen it was so fierce that my right hand gave out and was snatched of the steering wheel and I damaged my right arm on the steering wheel column. Still kind of hurts and I still have scars.

In traffic transmission intermittently locks you out of 2nd gear. Ford would not repair under warranty their tech said repair might not resolve the issue and might make the problem even worse. Vehicle is a bit dangerous and unnerving to drive in traffic, especially heavy traffic. Suspension bounces vehicle up and down heavily on the interstate at interstate speeds. Vehicle is a bit dangerous and unnerving to drive at interstate speeds on the interstate, especially if the road is course and curvy.

On my 2007 Mustang GT. The lower ball joint on left side would not pass pa state inspection @ 16,700 miles and right side went bad and would not pass inspection at @ 29,800 miles. The inspections were done at a Ford dealer. Each time the cost is over $500. Ford did split the cost after I complained about the first issue. I have checked a few Mustang sites and have found out others have had the same issues with cars 2005-06-07 and 08 Mustangs.

At 64,700 miles my rt. And left ball joints and suspension arm were found to be loose and had to be replaced. After investigating on google for ball joint failure for Mustangs I found that many other people were expressing the same complaint about their Mustangs, particularly the newer models sale during 2004-2007.

I own a 2007 Mustang GT. It has less than 15 thousand miles on it. It has failed inspection (12/22/11) due to the driver side lower ball joint being worn out. The car is pulling and has a thumping noise. I contacted Ford and they E-mailed me the following information: In the future, when the national highway traffic and safety administration (NHTSA) release a recall/customer satisfaction program on this particular component, you will be eligible for a refund if you already had the repairs completed and if not, you will be able to have the repair free of charge. Keep in mind that the NHTSA is the federal Agency who is responsible to review this kind of programs.

Ball joints and control arms are failing due to faulty cheap parts these parts should be recalled before someone gets hurt look at some Mustang forums it's very widespread failing as early as 7800 miles on models made from 2005 to 2009.
